5 ways to wear a blazer

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- If you don't have a great blazer, you need one!

You can spend a little or spend a lot, but you'll have a piece you can wear in so many ways. Here are five fresh ideas for outfits from just one blazer.

"The blazer is the perfect piece for every woman's wardrobe. It can take you from day to night, season to season, and year round. They're unlike the coat or the jacket because they're really chic and cute, so you can wear them with pretty much anything," says fashion stylist Ashley Dunn.

She says just be sure to pick one in a solid color that pops. Here's how she styles the same bright orange blazer five different ways:

1. Work
Pair the blazer with a printed dress, colorful pumps, a statement necklace, and a great structured bag.

2. Dinner Date
Pair the blazer paired with a printed high-waist pant, silky shirt, nude heels, statement necklace, and a colorful clutch.

3. Saturday Brunch
Pair the blazer with a printed maxi skirt, tucked-in silky blouse, a casual heel, and colorful bag.

4. Party
Pair the blazer with a sequin cocktail dress, solid or print heels, statement earrings, and an oversized clutch.

5. Weekend
Pair the blazer with skinny or boyfriend jeans, a casual striped tee, flats or wedges, a cross-body bag or tote, and a chic baseball cap!
